Coffee Joy

I’ve had to stop drinking coffee because it was adding fuel to the fire of my anxiety.

I hate doing these "responsible" things because while they make my overall life better (less anxiety is always good) they steal little moments of joy from me.

Making a V60 coffee when I get up has been my "morning meditation" for several years, and having that yanked out of my life is unpleasant.

Even if you press me for an answer now I wouldn’t be able to tell you whether the slight decrease in anxiety is worth the daily decrease in joy.
